Book the Slot (http://provider.booktheslot.com/signin) has recently been piloting its brand new service with a range of businesses. From yoga teachers to hair dressers, Book the Slot has helped businesses generate additional revenue by providing their customers with a new way to book appointments. For business like beauty and hair salons, fitness classes and tattoo studios that rely on appointments and bookings, Book the Slot is a low cost way to access customers accustomed to booking appointments online.
Businesses can add a booking widget to their website which prompts customers to schedule appointments online. Businesses without a website are also able to take advantage of the new service as customers can book appointments directly through the Book the Slot website.
A great feature of the Book the Slot platform is their sister search website which allows customers to search for a particular activity or service by location. This means that not only can it help your business manage appointments better but it can also help you find and secure new customers.
Company Director Mukul Pahwa says; “The website will be of tremendous value to entrepreneurs, business professionals and small businesses who are struggling to manage their appointments and time effectively. Book the Slot saves you time which allows you to focus on other areas of your business and helps your business run at a better and more efficient pace.”
Online scheduling is a great way to secure bookings and has been proven to reduce missed appointments and no shows. It is also more efficient than using emails as a way of booking appointments, going backwards and forwards with emails is messy and can be confusing for the customers. There are also many flaws with using other, more traditional ways of booking appointments. In this day and age people lead increasingly busy lives and having to remember the exact time and date of every single appointment is almost an impossible task. With Book the Slot you can automatically send reminder messages to your customers 24 hours before their appointment reducing the amount of cancellations and missed appointments your business receives.
They also offer a number of helpful features that other online scheduling providers do not. Firstly businesses will have full access to an easy to use CRM that allows you to make notes about a customer and view their booking history. Your business will also have access to analysis and reporting tools that will give you information on your most and least popular activities and staff performance. Book the Slot can also take payment for you on all of your activities so you don’t have the hassle of taking the payment in more traditional ways, saving your business time and allowing you to focus on what really matters… your business.
Businesses can upload an unlimited number of activities and services to their account and can add as many locations and places as required. Unlike other similar providers Book the Slot do not charge a commission per booking, just a set monthly price depending on your requirements. 1-2 members of staff is available for £9.99 a month, £19.99 a month for 3 -10 staff members and a set monthly cost can be negotiated for businesses with 11+staff members.
